As a psychotherapist and sleep counselor, I think this book has made a much needed contribution to the field. It is very readable and easy to identify with the people and problems Dr. Haug presents. He quite masterfully guides the patients (and readers), with concepts, suggestions and most importantly ...with caring and compassion. Refreshingly, he does not toot his own horn as so many "self help" authors do. I enjoyed it and will keep it in mind when working with people who are suffering from lack of sleep.

Dr Haug gives step-by-step actions to break the cycle of sleeplessness in simple, encouraging language. In a series of case studies and employing a variety of techniques including breath work, journaling, group support, therapy and simple verbal and physical exercises, Dr. Haug demonstrates that insomnia can be overcome without resorting to pharmacological aids. He reminds us that a good night's sleep is one of life's pure pleasures, and his book gets us there.

This book was excellent. It didn't take a long time to read and it REALLY shined light on issues I had no idea were keeping me awake! I can fall asleep quickly now just by changing the way I think.

Here's some things I liked in particular:

The book reads like a story, and it feels like you have a coach there with you.

All the actionable points are very clear. You can start by following the numbers and bullet points and techniques to develop the most important things first, and then dig into the stories to find tons of other things to develop... I just read it start to finish but it was easy to go back and pick things up.

It makes the concept clearer to see them laid out like a play with monologues (the book is largely focused on Dr. Haug coaching his patients) - and because it reads like a story with a coach in it, it captivates the reader making it easy to learn

What I think it really comes down to - why this book seems like a powerful cure for insomnia - is that it imprints COACHING into written words. I think even the most struggling insomniacs would be moved by this book. It's helped me gain a superior understanding of what "wired" things are and what "tired" things are... something every insomniac should know about.

I Want to Sleep: Unlearning Insomnia - Treat Yourself to a Good Night

Dr. Haug brings extensive knowledge and experience to the insomnia dilemma. Yet the book is an easy read, with an absence of academic mumbo-jumbo. In fact, much of it is plain Common Sense that I had overlooked or forgot.

Loaded with useful practical advice and case studies contrasting wrong ways and right ways to approach insomnia, this little gem of a book is a must-read for anybody with sleep issues. You'll see!

Two thumbs way, way up! After a lifetime of struggling with sleep problems I read this book on the advice of a friend. I was sceptical, thinking this would be yet another book about sleep that doesn't work for me........ but I was wrong. This book turned my whole situation around. I Not only am I not having trouble falling asleep, I am able to sleep all night long. I haven't ever been able to say that before now. I am sleeping soundly, waking up alert and rested and Pain Free! Yes, You heard me....... Pain free! A well rested body, it turns out feels a whole lot better than a fatiqued body........... so....... I am personally transformed and am grateful to be rid of what had been ailing me for most of my 50 years on the planet! I highly reccomend everyone with sleep problems try this book. Read it, follow the simple easy to read guidence that this book provides and sleep like a baby! You'll be standing right next to me writing your own review of this book! BRAVO, Mr Haug! Thank you so much to you for writing the book that literally changed my life.
